It’s that time of year when most of us are about to be staring down a bowl of our kid’s candy or co-worker’s Holiday M&M stash at the office.

Whether you are running a little hot during your sleep or you just want a little indulgence, the Blissy silk pillowcase is your new best friend. Hypoallergenic, washable, natural and cool (unlike satin, no more turning the pillow over to the cool side!) it’s a blissful way to drift off to sleep. I also absolutely love that unlike cotton, the Blissy pillowcase will keep your skincare on your skin and not on your pillowcase, not to mention keeping the frizz out of your hair. It's a small but impactful bit of self care that is 30% off with code BETTEREVERYDAY at checkout. They make fantastic gifts as well!

My friend and colleague Steph Gruenke, formerly with Whole30 and WholeMamas joins me to talk about a more sane way to approach getting back to your health and fitness during postpartum. As my OB said to me once, “Our bodies are forever changed by our babies” it’s so important to understand how to approach this new phase through a lens of what’s new, what’s shifted and how can we honor all of our new priorities, schedules and goals in the best way with a balance of grace and grit. It’s all about doing more of what you can and letting go of what you can’t. It’s a wild ride and I hope this conversation helps.

Did you know that 95% of women taking a prenatal are still nutrient deficient? The founders of Needed saw this as a big problem and I couldn’t agree more! But Needed quickly became a bigger solution to a bigger problem by providing more options for moms and moms to be. Women need so much support during the time from thinking about getting pregnant all the way to having little ones and so often they are left with options that don’t address their needs (prenatals that have nutrients in the wrong forms or that they can’t take due to nausea) or they are left with low energy, anxiety or even colds/flus while they are pregnant or nursing because there aren’t natural products that are considered safe during these times. Needed solved all of these problems as well as created a community of no-guilt, education and support for new moms and moms to be.

Sleep is a complex process that is regulated by your hormones and immune system, it’s no wonder when you're stressed and inflamed how quickly your sleep goes downhill. Sleep supplements abound and most of you have had hit and miss results with “taking stuff for sleep” at bedtime. In this episode I will get into the various phases of sleep and how cortisol will impact them and why my mantra will always be: a good night’s sleep starts in the morning. This show will help you understand how cortisol and stress are impacting your sleep and help you structure your day and your habits for better sleep.

We all know the downsides of alcohol, but it is still something many decide to enjoy on occasion. Most of us also notice that especially as we get into our 40s and beyond that one glass of wine feels like way more than a glass the next day. If you choose to indulge, one dose of ZBiotics before drinking any alcohol can make you feel way less yucky the next day! Cool…but how? The yuck the day after having alcohol is due to a buildup of acetaldehyde (a byproduct of alcohol metabolism). ZBiotics is a probiotic formula that helps you break down acetaldehyde in the gut so you can have a great workout and a great day even after a drink the night before. Click here to save 15% off ZBiotics. Oh, and they do have a money back guarantee, so why not?

In most ways, I still feel like a new mom - although I’ve been a mom for a dozen years somehow. I’ve been in the hopeful and new mom phase personally but also this is a huge part of my practice. In this episode I share my best advice on planning for a family (especially if there are challenges), birth plans and what I wish I knew then.

One of THE BEST tools for your health is a CGM, continuous glucose monitor. It helps you effortlessly understand what foods work for you and even how stress and sleep impact your blood sugar allowing you to make changes in real time. A CGM also allows you to see your glucose variability (the difference between your highs and lows) which may be as important as how high your blood sugar runs. It’s an amazing tool and Nutrisense has my favorite interface with their app and dietitian support! It’s easy and straightforward and with code BETTEREVERYDAY at checkout you can save 30% off a subscription. Click here and be well on your way to better health.
